THE BIG FREEZE Forecasters fear Britain could be battered by coldest winter in FIVE YEARS (temps hitting -11°C)

BRITAIN will be frozen stiff in December and January with temperatures plummeting to a teeth-chattering -11C (12.2°F), forecasters say.

Weather experts are predicting this winter could be the coldest in five years with freezing Arctic winds causing widespread snow and ice resulting in travel chaos.

And the “big freeze” could start as soon as Monday with temperatures falling to -4°C overnight.

All areas of the county could be affected making it the coldest winter since 2012/13.

That winter, temperatures dropped to -14°C causing roads and railways to freeze over resulting in hundreds of deaths.

The Weather Company chief meteorologist Todd Crawford said: “We expect the coldest winter in the UK since 2012-13.

“We expect extended spells with a ridge of pressure in the North Atlantic, especially in early winter.

“This forces the jet stream up to the Arctic and back down into Europe, releasing Arctic high pressure from near the Pole directly into northern Europe, with colder-than-normal temperatures.”

AccuWeather senior meteorologist Alan Reppert said: “Snow and ice will be a much higher threat this winter and could affect London.

“There is a higher-than-normal potential for temperatures below -10°C further north in the UK.”

A Met Office forecaster said: “Blustery showers will perhaps be wintry over northern hills on Thursday, then remaining rather cold through early November with the risk of more widespread overnight frost.

“Towards mid-November, the weather will probably remain mainly settled. Temperatures may be slightly colder than normal in any prolonged settled spells.”

    Seriously, weather forecasts are proof that climate forecasting is pure folly.

      Don’t forget that we are dealing with climate alarmists. These people twist anything they can to their advantage. Editing someone else’s article might be turned around to mean deliberately changing the meaning of that article.

      The picture above is a screenshot from the Sun website. I fixed the duplication of sentences (not sure why that happened). Sorry about that.

    Why has there not yet been a class action law suit brought on by the
    families and friends who have lost loved ones due to fuel poverty deaths that were avoidable from the beginning of the inconvenient climate fever scam . There is no excuse and there never was for the foolish wealth transfer policies that have driven energy costs to the point of eat or heat decisions . The fat cats sitting in their castles
    or drinking umbrella drinks on their island certainly aren’t missing any meals or heat to stop from freezing .

    Should this years forecast for Britain come true, it could be a preview for the world. Energy prices have skyrocketed to fight the fraud of global warming, and then we have a good chance of entering a mini ice age where lots of energy is needed.
